Atlanta Celebrates Photography marks its 15th anniversary this month with free events and exhibitions at more than 150 participating venues. The 2013 festival will feature lectures, public art, a photography auction, photobook fair, film series and more.

Some of this year’s highlights include My Atlanta, an opportunity for photographers of all ages and with all levels of experience to exhibit their work. You are invited to hang your best photo at Piedmont Park for all to see and you might even win a prize.

Those traversing the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail can see Gregor Turk’s installation called “Apparitions,” a series of inward-facing billboards referencing place and the priorities of the BeltLine itself.

Atlanta’s galleries and public spaces are also taking part in this month of events, so be sure to visit acpinfo.org to download the program or see the full schedule of events.
